100 Club


I've been a little MIA from SOL from a few days. I started Spring Break and just kind of fell of the face of the Earth. It's been a good thing because I've been able to have some quality family time and even though it kind of bothers me that I can't say that I wrote for EVERY single day of March, I think I needed to unplug completely and now I feel ready to finish the rest of the month.

TGIF


Thank God it's Friday. 

Thank God that Spring Break is finally here!

Thank God for my McMillin family that I get to work with each day.

Thank God for my students who challenge me each day, in both good and bad ways.

Thank God for my husband who puts up with his stressed out wife and sees her at her ugliest moments, but loves her nonetheless.

Thank God for my baby girls who give the best cuddles and snuggles that brighten my day.

Thank God for caffeine to pick me up when I have no more energy.

Thank God for Pure Barre to help me de-stress when the day's burdens weigh me down.

Thank God for my Bible Study family who provide fellowship, prayer, and friendship on a weekly basis.

Thank God for longer days, which means more time to play in the backyard and evening walks.

Thank God for my work wifey who always knows when I need a hug.

Thank God for time to replenish my spirit, spend time with family, work on projects, finish some books, and rejuvenate my soul.

Thank God it's Friday.

 

Thank you God, for everything.

Color Wheels


"This is so much fun!"

"Mrs. Ko, you should be an art teacher. You're so good at art."

"Look at my colors! I really like my red-violet color."

We are finally winding down from the quarter and we are now officially just one day away from Spring Break. The weeks leading up to break always feel like three times longer and I am just happy that the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to shine brightly now.

We decided to do some artwork with our kids, using what we learned from the art training over the weekend, to wrap up our almost year-long read-aloud on the book Wonder

Just like many teachers, art is definitely become something that we do less and less of in the classroom. Unfortunately, with so many things to do, it's pretty much nonexistent in our day to day schedule. Whenever, I get the chance to do art with my students, I am always pleasantly reminded of how much they just LOVE it. They are so quiet and alert. (I wish they were like that for all of my lessons!) 

I mentioned to them that we would be doing an art activity in the morning and they tried so hard to be super well-behaved throughout the morning, so that we could hurry up and finish our "must-do's" to get to our FUN! I had so many kids stay in from recess to help set up materials and clean up after-school. I felt a little bad that we haven't given our students many of these opportunities to just sit back and enjoy art. I

We mixed colors today and tomorrow, we will be working on our self-portraits. I can't wait to see how they turn out. 

It was so much fun to let loose and have FUN with my kids today.

Wings and Things


Whoever says that beer and wings are just for boys is so wrong.

I just came back from a great night with my girls and we had so much fun. It was much-needed and I'm so glad we made time for it.

One of the best things about our bible study group is that we've become a family away from home. It is really hard to raise kids without family around and I'm so thankful that we have our bible study family to be around and help us raise our girls.

Every quarter or so, we do a men's night and a women's night. This time we went to Buffalo Wild Wings. We ate, watched some March Madness, talked about motherhood, shared about how hard military life is... True fellowship.

I am so thankful for these women.

#SOL15 Day 17 :: March 17, 2015 :: The One Where I Kiss Adam Levine

Kissing Adam Levine


I usually have really bad dreams. Like the awful, wake up crying kind of dreams that take awhile for me to snap out of. They usually involve me running away from something, being chased by someone, or trying to figure out where my husband is.

Very rarely do I ever have a dream where something pleasant happens. I actually don't remember the last time I had a pleasant dream. 

So last night/this morning, I had a dream that someone told me where Maroon 5 was practicing, so I decided to go. I thought a lot of people were going to be there, but no one showed up.  It ended up being me and a few of my friends hanging out with the band at this random beach house in Orange County.

Not sure what happened in between, but apparently one thing led to another and I ended up kissing Adam Levine! 

Talk about dream come true! I've had a crush on him for so long now, ever since Songs About Jane came out way back in college. 

I don't remember what happened afterwards, but then I found out later that he also made out with one of my closest friends. Apparently, Adam gave them something for their car as a gift. Surprisingly, I wasn't upset about it. 

When I woke up, I was so shocked that I actually had a happy dream that I was super eager to share with my husband (who is very much aware of my crush on Adam Levine). 

"Honey! I dreamt I kissed Adam Levine!" 

"Oh yeah? What happened?"

"I don't know, but we made out. Then I found out that he also made out with (my friend) and he gave them a rooftop storage thing for their car as a gift." 

"Well, you should have asked him for a minivan!" 
(We've had minivan "fever" for about a year now. Sexy, right?) 


On a side note, I want to make it clear that I love my husband, Adam Ko. He's truly the best Adam of them all.
